NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Randy Travis is being sued by his ex-wife and former manager.
Travis says the lawsuit filed last week in Nashville by Elizabeth Travis lacks merit and that it's "unfortunate that it's come to this." But the country music star in the statement from his publicist doesn't address her claim that he hired men to strip her office of records and memorabilia related to his career.
Elizabeth Travis claims her ex-husband made it impossible for her to do her job and terminated their management agreement without written warning. She's asking for damages, attorney fees, litigation costs and whatever other damages the court feels appropriate.
The Travises divorced in 2010 after 19 years of marriage. Elizabeth Travis had served as his manager for more than three decades.
